I´m not sure if I read this comment here or in a german forum but he had a point:
Those are not my words but he wrote it like this:
If the front-reason to ban porn is to protect women´s dignity:
We then need to ban romantic books with sex in it, too. Why? Because it´s porn for women. If my lady sneaks up to me after reading in one of her "romantic books" to have sex because the book made her horny...
Should I be hurt in my feelings because it´s clear that she will fantasize during sex me being in the role of the guy in the book?
Something along that line and he had a point!

Nevermind the gun debate and access to AR15s. Nevermind the cost of healthcare. Florida has far bigger concerns ya know?
Pornography is being declared a health risk by the Florida Legislature.
The state's House of Representatives approved the resolution by a voice vote Tuesday, despite some members asking why the topic is being taken up at this time. The resolution was sponsored by Rep. Ross Spano, who is running for attorney general.
Spano said there's research showing a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior. The resolution states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.
It's all about protecting Floridians right? By getting down and dirty and into the privacy of homes. This passed reportedly after the legislature declined to review a ban on semiautomatic guns and large capacity weapons.
I'd really like to know how vast of an issue pornography is compared to these other matters? Because I call nonsense I really do. It's any wonder why people are so earger to get involved in what consenting adults do. It's any wonder how they get voted in continiously as well?

If you're weak and mentally unstable, go check yourself to an institution. Stop ruining it for everybody else.
